Darksiders, Red Faction and more go to under the hammer

THQ is to auction off its remaining unsold properties.

Assets yet to be snapped up in last months' major auction will be offered in a new court-approved sales process to kick off on April 15, the deadline for bids.

THQ is offering six distinct packages. Darksiders, Red Faction, Homeworld and MX will be sold as individual properties. Internally-produced properties will be sold in one bundle, while licensed titles will be offered in another. The purchaser will be liable for costs associated with licensed costs.

A full list of what's in each package is available below, but both bundles include some cracking properties like de Blob, Supreme Commander, Titan Quest, Drawn to Life, Lock's Quest, Costume Quest, Worms and Stacking. Whoever picks up these bundles will take over all costs and revenues associated with back-catalogue sales, as well as, in some cases, have the right to develop the property further.

THQ said it has already received more than 100 expressions of interest for various properties and is anticipating "a vigorous sale".

Most of THQ's properties and in-development titles were purchased last month, with the notable exception of Vigil Studios and its Darksiders property. Many former Vigil staffers joined a new Crytek team, but Crytek isn't interested in the action series.
